This might not sound nice but…

Seriously, I sometimes feel like I’m in a world full of zombies. I’m always shocked at how gullible people can be and how eager they are to be accepted. Brainwashing, it’s actually really simple. Hello?! wake up can’t you see whats going on? I’m getting sick of pointing out the obvious. Maybe I’m just being a pretentious bitch, I don’t know.

I really want to meet William Gibson.

I like this quote;

The first man who, having fenced in a piece of land, said “This is mine,” and found people naive enough to believe him, that man was the true founder of civil society. From how many crimes, wars, and murders, from how many horrors and misfortunes might not any one have saved mankind, by pulling up the stakes, or filling up the ditch, and crying to his fellows: Beware of listening to this impostor; you are undone if you once forget that the fruits of the earth belong to us all, and the earth itself to nobody. ”

— Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Discourse on Inequality, 1754
